My Story

Started over rather late in life but joined the Fool and now, thanks to that wise move on my part and all the wonderful things The Fool is, I am now retired early!!!

How I Invest

I realize my limitations and work around them by a) being a Fool and b) learning about the world through my children c) keeping things simple. In other words, if the Fool recommends it, my kids like it, and I like it, I invest in it.
